(no entry) We know she is spending time with family in El Paso and preparing for the move to Roswell for her second teaching job.  Her next entry is tomorrow!

A look ahead: She is getting ready to leave for Roswell.   I’m surprised how often this teacher stays out late on a work night. And we find out what movie inspires the latest dance craze!

President Roosevelt signed the Guffey Coal Act and the Revenue Act of 1935 into law.

The Reichsmusikkammer banned non-Aryans from playing in German orchestras.

Nazi Germany ordered workers under 25 years of age to surrender their jobs to older unemployed men, especially fathers of large families. All employers would be required to submit reports to the labour office divulging the number of workers they employ under the age of 25 and what measures they would be taking to replace them
